Fulham have completed the signing of striker Rodrigo Muniz from Flamengo, the Championship club have confirmed.
Since stepping up to Flamengo’s senior side last year, Muniz has scored ten goals in 32 appearances in all competitions for the Brazilian giants, while he also scored once in six outings during a loan spell with Coritiba last season.
It was reported earlier this month that Fulham had agreed an €8million fee with Flamengo for the 20-year-old, and they have now got their man.
The Cottagers announced on Friday night that they have now completed the signing of Muniz, who has joined on a five-year deal, with the option to extend by a further 12 months, effectively securing his future at Craven Cottage until the end of the 2026/27 season.
Have Fulham won or lost more games against these 25 teams?
Muniz becomes Fulham’s third signing of the transfer window, following attacking midfielder Harry Wilson and goalkeeper Paolo Gazzaniga in joining the club.
Taking to Twitter to react to Muniz’ signing, plenty of Fulham fans were keen to give their thoughts on the club’s latest recruit.
Here, we take a look at what some of them had to say.
HE’S HERE AND HE’S PERFECT

Muniz is 20 yr old with few first team games coming to a different continent and style of football, one for the future. Could have a lot of pressure if Mitro out of form or injured hoping we see someone a bit more ready coming to #ffc
